bpresby Posted August 23, 2020 Share Posted August 23, 2020 First, I am so bummed I forgot my good camera on yesterday's fishing trip. I should have had 5 or 6 new species, but couldn't ID. So all I have these iPhone shots. When I tried to crop it was too tiled so I left as is since when I zoom I can see enough to attempt an ID. Here are my identifications, As always corrections, confirmations, and education always greatly appreciated. Shorebird? Petrel? Not a great show. Was sitting on a Kelp Paddy 45 miles off the coast and 35 miles south of Catalina Island. Black-vented Shearwater There were several species of Shearwaters, terns, gulls, etc. on a large school of bait fish. About 4 or 5 miles off the coast of Newport. These are the only shots I got of this species. Sorry for the poor shots. I will not forget the good camera next time (especially since fishing was poor) B Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
